Rohit nominated for Khel Ratna; Dhawan, Ishant and Deepti for Arjuna awards: BCCI

Sports Lounge Staff




New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Saturday nominated the side’s limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma for the prestigious Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award. Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan, fast bowler Ishant Sharma and women’s all-rounder Deepti Sharma have been nominated for the Arjuna Awards.

Speaking on the nominations, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said that Rohit ‘set new benchmarks’ as a batsman and is worthy of the highest sporting honour in the country.

“We went through a lot of data and considered various parameters before shortlisting the nominees. Rohit Sharma has set new benchmarks as a batsman and achieved scores people thought were not possible in the shorter formats of the game. We feel he is worthy of getting the prestigious Khel Ratna award for his commitment, conduct, consistency and his leadership skills,” said Ganguly.

Rohit Sharma was the top-scorer in the 2019 World Cup and during the tournament, also equalled Sachin Tendulkar’s  record for most centuries in the sport’s premier tournament.

Ganguly also heaped praise on Ishant, Dhawan and Deepti.

“Ishant Sharma is the most senior member of the Test squad and his contribution has been vital in Indian team’s long run as the No. 1 Test side. Fast bowlers are prone to injuries and Ishant has had a fair share of them but he has fought hard to be back on the park every time,” said Ganguly.

“Shikhar has been consistently scoring at the top and his performances in the ICC events have been significant.

“Deepti is a genuine all-rounder and her contribution to the team has been vital.”

    A handheld steamer does just as good a work at steam cleansing when in contrast to a comprehensive-sized device it’s just a scaled-down variation. Another draw back of a handheld steamer is that they can’t keep as a great deal
    water in their scaled-down tanks when compared to a frequent entire-sized product.
    Even if you use it after a thirty day period, the value savings of possessing a steamer
    will fork out for by itself in no time at all. If you compare the price of
    rental around some time with the reduction of getting
    a significant-responsibility cleaner, you will realise that purchasing is the greater possibility.
    If we’re speaking about loads of pets shedding hair
    all more than the spot, then get the most powerful model you can find the money for.

    If you have pets or kids in the property shopping for an upholstery steam
    cleaner is a no-brainer as significantly as we are
    involved. I have to confess we really do not
    have any pets and food stuff is not authorized in the living
    room, but this carpet did have filth stains!
    Cleans and guards versus grime and future soils. Going with a greener services will mean a more healthy future for the subsequent era
    as effectively as for the natural environment.
